Introduction to literary studies last comment!

Hello my name is Kayley Dardano and I am a student at Seton Hill University. This is a portfolio of what I have done the end of the currant semester, in the course Introduction to literary studies taught by Dr. Jeers. These blog entries display my ability to understand and interpret literature in my own way. Throughout the class we have learned how to closely analyze literary works including poetry, short stories, and some of Shakespeare’s masterpieces. Everyday the students in this course were required to publish a blog entry on the readings assigned in class. All my entries have links back to the course website and from the course website to my blog entries. The course website is filled with other students blogs on the same readings but different topics and points of view. I have created a few links strait to the readings as well as to the website.  I am extremely proud of how I have developed in the blogging process and plan to keep using it in the future. I am really glad that this technology was brought to my attention. I think this would have been really useful in my high school classes, and I hope to bring it into my future classroom.



- This blog is a good example of how I made it easy for a viewer to move between the course website and my blog pages.

Being on time is one of the most important qualities a person can have. Being on time is causal in the business world, which is why it is so important in college. College is there to prepare you for the real world and this class does so by setting dead lines. For class we were to finish our blogs 24 hours in advance.
